Help evacuate our aunt and her family out of Gaza!

Donation protected
Dear compassionate souls,

We are reaching out to you with a heavy heart and an urgent plea for help. My family and I are seeking your support to rescue my beloved aunt Ibtisam, along with her four sons, two daughters, and their families, from the harrowing conditions in Gaza.

The Gaza Strip is currently ravaged by the horrors of war, leaving its innocent inhabitants grappling with starvation, dehydration, and rampant illnesses. My aunt's family has endured unimaginable suffering, losing everything in this vicious conflict. The situation is dire, and the need for immediate action is crucial. However, Gaza is under blockade, including the borders with Egypt.

In a ray of hope, fleeing the horrific conditions in Gaza is only possible through paying thousands of dollars per person at the Rafah crossing with Egypt, and we are doing our best to get them through this crossing. In response to this dire situation, we have initiated a heartfelt campaign to raise funds for the fees standing between my family and safety. Your support has the power to make an immeasurable difference in the lives of these innocent souls.

In order to cross the Rafah crossing border, a minimum of 7000 USD (9400 CAD) for every individual above the age of 11. We are hoping to reach the cost that is required to evacuate five of our adult relatives.

Every donation, regardless of its size, is a crucial step towards reuniting my family in an environment where they can begin to rebuild their lives, free from the haunting specter of war. Your generosity will pave the way for a brighter future for my aunt's family, allowing them to escape the horrors they've endured and find solace and security.

Imagine the pain of innocent children, robbed of their laughter, play, and the basic joys of childhood. My aunt's grandchildren deserve more than the echoes of war; they deserve a safe haven where they can experience clean water, nourishing food, and the simple pleasure of seeing other children play freely around them. They deserve a childhood free from the harsh realities of bombardment and displacement, just like any other child in the world.

Please join hands with us in this humanitarian effort. Your kindness and compassion will be the beacon of hope that guides my family to safety. Together, we can make a difference, and together, we can bring about the joyous reunion that my aunt's family so desperately deserves.

Thank you from the depths of my heart for your support.

With gratitude,
Ahmad, Abrar and Family
